REVISED: Why do two of Austen's books in this otherwise wonderful, 5-star set lack italics (or ALL CAPS or even _this_) to indicate the emphasis that Austen occasionally gives to certain words? Of her six major novels "Persuasion" and "Northanger Abbey" lack italicization. I consider this a SERIOUS flaw which I hope will be corrected in future editions. Austen doesn't italicize frequently, so when she does, it is DELIBERATELY done to convey some emphasis or nuance of meaning, a subtlety unavailable to avid Austen fans in editions without italics, ALL CAPS or _this_.

Having aired my gripe, however, I still consider this an excellent collection of EVERYTHING Austen ever wrote. In fact, it's ONE of the BEST complete Austen ebook collection currently available in the Kindle store. (Most other sets italicize FEWER, and many NONE, of her novels.)

However, an excellent, similarly-priced, complete set is now being offered by Palmera Press in the Kindle store with 5 of the 6 major novels being properly italicized (the exception being "Northanger Abbey"). You may wish to search for it (by typing "Palmera Austen" in the Kindle Store searchbox) to compare it to this Delphi edition. (At the moment, I actually prefer THAT Palmera set.)

As good as this set is, it will be not be PERFECT until the aforementioned two novels receive italics to permit readers to know which words Austen intended to stress. Then THiS will be THE very best Austen ebook set rather than just ONE of two contenders for that honor.

ADDENDUM: Initially published by Delphi in 2011, an updated version 4 appeared in 2012 and version 5 in 2014. Sadly, the same two books STILL lack italics despite subtle corrections in other areas.

In reading the 6 main novels in this collection I have found no less than 150 errors - all of them of punctuation (where opening or closing quotes are replaced by the opposite ones).

Not, a serious problem content-wise, but it would be nice if it were corrected.

Reading Jane Austen's works will elevate the reader to a higher level. I never tire of great literature! Loved these books as a youngster, and it greatly improved my understanding of the English language. I would recommend this collection to anyone who wants to be well-read or reminded how beautiful the English language can be.

I really appreciate the work these guys have put in to ensure such a nice collection and a reasonable price.
The books are wonderful, but I I have two issues.

1. the book size becomes huge and seems to slow down my kindle.
2. I wish they had done a better job with the ToC. They have not made a effort to have a nested Toc for each book. You have the ability to get to the book directly via the Kindle Go To though.

I have not read the complete book, but enjoy the illustrations. I am finding it very informative. It gives you the flavor of her time and I believe it will help me understand her stories more fully. I have many books and am purchasing a book in hard cover if I feel it is special; otherwise, I purchase the Kindle edition. This is a lovely book for a book lovers collection.

Wonderful to have these stories all in one place. Good to have the electronic version so I could read one, bounce back to another, compare charactors and dialogue. Illustrations were nice reminder of the times the stories took place.

I really love the older literature and Jane Austen has been a favorite since my teen years. There's romance,intrigue,comedy and lots of drama. I was pleased that her early writings were included. Romance from the view of a preteen of the nineteenth century is delightful in its' naivte'. At 85 years of age I can really appreciate that. Now back to my reading while I am still awke to do so.

I actually just bought this book because it was both cheap and it had "Sanditon." Upon my reading of Sanditon I have bumped into a lot of typos or missing characters (and I still haven't finished reading). I haven't read the other parts of the book so I'm not sure if that's the only book/story that has this problem but it might be that since Sanditon was an unfinished work by Austen that it wasn't edited or something of the sort. Other than that this seems like a very complete compilation of the works of Jane Austen at a very affordable price.
